Each individual has a specific set of habits, which he/she is often seen doing. Sometimes, one gets used to them so much that one starts practising them inadvertently and become a part of your personality. Look at of the unique on-field habits of the some of the famous Indian cricketers.
Every person is unique in himself/herself. Just as people possess some traits, there are some innate habits as well. These are natural to everyone and even cricketers too. Here are some of the reputed cricketers along with their on-field practices.
The former Indian captain is regarded as one of the best finishers in the world, while he too has a unique set of habits. No sooner he walks on the field that he plants his right leg first and then he looks behind to his left and towards the sky. He is repeatedly seen strapping his gloves tight. Often after hitting a boundary, he is seen walking down the pitch with the bat tucked under his arm, where he unstraps his gloves to tighten them again.
The current Indian skipper and the number one batsman of the world, Virat Kohli has quite a different mannerism. Ahead of any delivery, before he goes back to his stance, Kohli is seen raising his bat in the direction of the slip and then twirling it.
Terrific opener for India, he was the swashbuckling right-handed batsman. The name reminds fans of Virender Sehwag’s famous habit of the red-coloured handkerchief, which was always peeping out of his left pocket. There is yet another mannerism which even he might not be aware of, i.e. he always put his right leg first while entering the cricket field. Besides, his mates tell that he used to sing and whistle while batting.
Even the ‘God of Cricket’ Sachin Tendulkar had one of the most iconic habits of plunging a little to adjust his cricket gear. He was often imitated and mocked by the youngsters for his mannerism. Besides, ahead of every delivery, Sachin used to walk down the track and tap the area of the pitch where the ball was bowled.
